Frankisstein

DUE IN OCTOBER In her new novel, Frankisstein, Jeanette Winterson asks age-old questions: Are we our bodies or our minds, neither or both? Through this fractured tale of multiple narratives lives Mary Shelley's creation, Victor Frankenstein who emerges again into a post-Internet world, his dream of creating life from death even closer to his grasp. Winterson contemplates the same conundrum as Shelley: can a machine really replace a human, can a human creation duplicate the power of the human mind? Frankisstein is a tour de force.
